Is it a mistake disclosing accepted by the other school during a college interview?

A student has an interview. A local interviewer said he graduated from a local top school during the interview and then asked the student whether the student has applied for it. The student said yes and has been accepted through the early action (no binding). I do not know whether the interviewer would report it to the school or not. Both schools are selective while the other one is ranked higher. Do you think it is a mistake disclosing accepted from the other school during the college interview and why? Thank you for your answer.

    I do not think that this is a problem. Universities know that students apply to multiple schools. They also know that strong students will be accepted to other top schools. The student was just honestly answering a question that was asked of him/her.

    I would not worry about it at all.

    The only way the college application process works is by prospective students applying to schools, with millions applying to differing institutions. The person you spoke to in your interview most likely applied to multiple schools of high caliber. I wouldn't stress it.

    Take an example. If a student told the University of Chicago interviewer that s/he has been accepted by Caltech through Early Action and the local interviewer reported UC about it. Will UC still likely offer a spot to the applicant?
